Changes to my Dining Room

Hello everyone!

Have you ever bought something that led to a whole room change?  I did!  I found a pretty church canvas (from Kirklands) that did just that.  I originally intended it for a different area, but you know how it goes.  You get it home and start seeing it in a new light in OTHER areas of your home and then try to decide on the best place for it.  I guess I was drawn to the brown tones in this picture and how it brought out the brown tones in the chairs and chandelier.  So, I placed this picture above the sideboard and a new room was born.

It's Finally Fall Y'all!

Hello everyone!

How has your week been?  The weather here in GA has been pretty.  The rain has moved out and the sun has been shining.  We finally got our yard all cleaned up from Tropical Storm Irma.  We still need to take our garden down.  The plants are no longer producing so it's time to clean it up and wait until next Spring to do it all over again.  

With today being the official first day of Fall, I thought it would be fun to post some pretty Fall images to get us all in the spirit of the season.

One Stop Shopping - Farmhouse Style

Hello everyone!

I'm so glad to finally be posting again! It turns out that the online photo editing website, PicMonkey, decided to begin charging for anyone who uses their site.  So, I needed to do a little homework and find another free site.  I didn't feel like I should pay for something that someone else can offer for free and I get the same thing in return!  So, for those of you who are looking for a free online imaging website that does virtually the same thing as PicMonkey (in my mind), try using Ribbet instead.  Thank you to  Lisa at Fern Creek Cottage for your recommendation! 

What I wanted to share with you was my trip to Kirklands and all their great farmhouse style goodies for sale!  My friend Kris at Junk Chic Cottage did a blog post back in early August about Kirklands.  I was so impressed, that I decided to go back and see what all my store had too.  You can see her post HERE.  I am not being compensated either.  These are items that caught my eye and were on sale during Labor Day. 

They have loads of farmhouse style goodies for serving in your kitchen.

My Favorite Faux Plants for Farmhouse Style

Hello everyone!

Can you believe it's September now?  This is the month that starts making me ready for Fall.  This is also the month when I think kids should go back to school.  I can't believe mine went back a month ago.  That's like summer school!  I think the way it was when I was growing up was the best.  It wouldn't surprise me if we eventually go to year round school.  Kind of sad! But.......that's not what I want to talk about today.  I want to talk about some of my favorite plants and their sources for a casual farmhouse style.  That includes modern and French style as well.  I love a mix of both actually.  
I love a few plants scattered around the house for that homey feeling.  I am not a live plant purist.  So, if you don't like faux, then you can just move along.  

The first plant is one that EVERYONE has been after lately.  It's the quint essential fiddle leaf fig.
